Coordinates: Who Needs Them?

You may be surprised to know that FlexMLS maps do not locate properties by coordinates, but by address... and addresses are more accurate and exact than coordinates.

With our current electronic mapping capabilities, use of the old coordinates system are slowly becoming obsolete. You can narrow a search by exact geographic area, and you don't have to consult or keep track of any special paper maps.

You will never have to guess at coordinates again, or be misdirected by them if you use the FlexMLS maps!

By using the FlexMLS maps instead of coordinates, you can:

  • Get a bird's eye view of an area on a map, including precise zip code areas.
  • Draw a box, circle, or polygon on a map and bring up all properties located in that area that match your search criteria.
  • See parcel outlines including lot dimensions, flow of traffic, driving directions, and more.
  • Access parcel info about the properties, whether the properties are listed in MLS or not.
  • Achieve far greater accuracy.
  • See either a traditional map or satellite view of the area in which you are interested.
